Program content

What does this program cover?

The objective of nuclear, particle and astrophysics is to understand the world at a subatomic level. In the context of the master 's program, students have the opportunity to acquire the discipline-specific fundamentals as well as essential insights into current research from across the spectrum of nuclear, particle and astrophysics.

Depending on your own interests, you can specialize in one of four subareas:

  • Particle and astrophysics deals with topics such as astrophysics, astroparticle physics and high energy neutrino astronomy.
  • The central focus of experimental nuclear physics is on topics such as particle detectors, applications in interdisciplinary research and ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions.
  • Experimental particle physics is devoted to areas such as cosmic and earthbound accelerators, testing the Standard Model, modern detectors as well as data analysis and Monte Carlo methods.
  • Theoretical particle physics concentrates on areas such as group theory, quantum field theory or quantum chromodynamics.
